    Dear Shirley,

    My thoughts and prayers are with you throughout this week as you all prepare to say goodbye to Gary. We will all miss him and his wonderful sense of humour out on the hiking trails, on the bus and wherever the M&M’s gather to have time together.

    I will be thinking of you on the 29th. I know you will have a wonderful service to remember Gary. It will be a celebration of his life and a time for you and your family and friends to be together to support each other.

    Dear Shirley and family: it is with much sadness that I read about Gary’s passing. He was a much loved member of the M&M hiking group where I first met you, Shirley, and Gary. He sure supplied ua with many a laugh over the years which made him so popular. I know you will miss him terribly, but better that he is at peace after his final illness.
    Love, Colleen Matthews

  12. Dear Shirley,

    I was shocked and very saddened to read of Gary’s passing in the Herald. I very much valued his assistance but, almost as importantly, we became good friends, enjoyed time together, and held a strong mutual trust.

    I very much regret that I was not in Calgary to attend the service. Please accept my most sincere condolences and prayers, not only for Gary, but also to help you and your family bear the burden of your loss.

    Gerry

    Such sad news I received today from a friend in Calgary.

    I had the very great pleasure and privilege of knowing and occasionally working with Gary for many years at TransCanada PipeLines in Toronto and Calgary.

    Gary was a kind and generous colleague and mentor who was never without a cheerful smile and friendly greeting. A true gentleman in every way.

    Please accept my most sincere condolences. You are all very much in my thoughts.
